Recipe – Hazelnut and Butterscotch Pull-aparts

Hazelnut and Butterscoth Pull-aparts
This recipe is one of the quickest and easiest I know, yet looks fabulous and tastes delicious. That’s my kind of cooking! Best of all, you can use this technique to make any flavour pull-aparts, sweet or savoury. Replace hazelnuts with any other nut, add dried fruit or chopped chocolate if you like. For savoury pull-parts, omit the sugar, rub half the butter into the flour and combine the rest with garlic, herbs or any other seasoning to spread over the dough. With hazelnut and butterscotch pull-aparts, try a glass of Ratafia de Champagne, a slightly sweet fortified wine made from the second pressing of Champagne grapes. Happy experimenting!

Serves 10

Ingredients
  • 150g cold salted butter
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 3 cups self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1¼ cups milk

Once you’ve seen how easy it is to make hazelnut and butterscotch pull-aparts, try savoury pull-aparts filled with herbs, cheese or tapenade; great to serve with soup.

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C.
  2. Soften half the butter (75g) and combine it with half the sugar.
  3. Spread over the base of a 20cm greased cake tin and sprinkle nuts on top.
  4. Cut half the remaining butter (about 40g) into small pieces and, using the tips of your fingers, rub it into the flour.
  5. Stir in 1 cup of the milk, adding a little more at a time if needed to form a firm dough, you may not need it all.
  6. Tip onto a lightly floured bench and pat into a rectangular shape.
  7. Gently roll and pat into a neat 25cm x 30cm rectangle.
  8. Melt remaining butter, drizzle over the dough and brush out to the edges.
  9. Sprinkle evenly with remaining sugar.
  10. Roll firmly, from the long side, into a Swiss roll.
  11. Cut into 10 slices and arrange in the cake tin in a single layer, cut side up.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until well-coloured, then remove from oven and turn out onto a serving plate.
  13. Spread any topping left in the tin over the top.
  14. Pull apart and serve warm.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
